A rocket hit an educational institute in Ashkelon Tuesday afternoon, causing no injuries. Eleven rockets have been fired at the area since the morning hours, none of them long-range rockets.

 

At about 2:45 pm three rockets fired from the Gaza Strip landed in open fields near Sderot and in the Eshkol Regional Council. Shortly later a fourth rocket was fired on Ashkelon and exploded in an open area as well.
